According to a few health experts, the return of large scale concerts could be quite a ways off with one claiming Fall of 2021 as the soonest.

I’ll just say what I know you’re thinking. Coronavirus can kiss my a**. This illness has taken away every bit of fun and excitement we had planned for the Spring and Summer months. Every show that was scheduled for venues around the Treasure Valley has either been cancelled or postponed.

In a New York Times article posted last Friday; health experts chimed in on when we might expect to see the return of life as we know it. According to the experts, as things get back to normal it will be businesses and employers who can maintain healthy social distancing that will re-open first. Bars and restaurants won’t be far behind. But for the return of large scale public gatherings like concerts, the outlook is grim with one expert saying Fall of 2021. Ugh.

If you’re jonesin for some live music, scour youtube and vimeo. A lot of your favorite bands are using those platforms to either perform live or replay some of their best concert moments. We get it, it’s not the same. But for the foreseeable future, it’s the best we’ve got.

As for what to do with those concert tickets you bought. Hold on to them. DO NOT throw them away, tear them up or burn them in anger. You never know what will happen. If you’re unsure of what to do with your concert tickets, reach out to the venue you purchased them from.
